    Beansprouts After School Program is for grades Pre-K through 3rd (for children outside of our Nursery School Program). Experienced staff walks the children to Beansprouts from local schools. Pre-K and Kindergarten children are met in their classrooms, 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders are met inside the school where their teachers dismiss them. Children who arrive by bus are met at local bus stops and walked to Beansprouts. After School Program hours are from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

    Comment:  The camp was fine, but disorganized. It seemed like they had too many kids to be efficient and the counselors seemed disorganized. Every day my daughter came home missing stuff. On the other hand, she had a great time and didn't seem to have any problems separating from me, which is unusual. What would you change? I would have the counselors be a bit more hands on with kids this young.

    Comment:  We really love this camp for my daughter. She has a great time everyday. It is very much like a preschool environment. She has made lots of friends. They do have more than one room for 3-4yrs old. We tried a couple weeks in the other room because there wasn’t enough space for us and we had a hard time. The teachers really set out the tone of the rooms and the other room just wasn’t a good fit for my daughter. This is not the fault of the camp but I think it is worthwhile knowing that consistency in experiences can vary from room to room. Irrespective of this I would recommend this camp to all my friends! What would you change? I would love if this camp ran a couple weeks longer.

    Comment:  Age: 6Review: My daughter had attended other camps and Beansprouts is the first one that consistently she loves! I was not sure what made the trips different from other camps but she seems to have such a wonderful time. I think have a dedicated indoor space with a dedicated play area where she can move freely from indoor to outdoor activities is a rare gem that makes her seem to enjoy herself and her freedom. She seems to LOVE the counselors (and I do too!) and the entire camp seems to recognize each camper's individual preferences and needs. The instructional swim mixed with a good amount of free swim is also making her a stronger swimmer. I am really thrilled that we joined this camp and look forward to next year returning.

    Comment:  Checkout the Beansprouts Summer Camp for a low-key camp in Park Slope that does very little (if any) bus trips with the little ones. They have a wonderful outdoor garden/play area, fun counselors and the kids run in the sprinklers, do art and play outside. I know the older kids go swimming a few days a week, but I can't recall what age they begin the swim program.

    Comment:  My daughter attended their summer program in 2018. She came home every day singing new songs, telling us about all her new friends and teachers, demonstrating yoga and dance moves she learned, and seemed genuinely happy to be there. About the facility: Has outdoor space What would you change? Their outdoor space is a little small, but works perfectly for the size of their younger classes.

    Comment:  My son loved the mix of adventures and explorations embedded in the safety of a regular, predictable routine. I think the coordinators at Beansprouts have a really good feel for creating opportunities for kids to see and do new things without taking them too far out of their comfort zone: each day of the week the kids know what kinds of things will take place (eg, Wednesday is field trip day, Thursday is swimming lessons days) but the exact nature of the activity varies within those parameters. And each week there is a new “theme” that shapes the activities, which helped my son to be excited about dynamic aspects of the program, including things that would normally make him anxious, like the slight rotations in venue, classmates and staff that are a natural part of most day camps. The quality of the activities and staff were excellent from my observation. Again, Beansprouts really knows how to strike a balance — there were enough educational activities to keep my son engaged but the mission of the program was still primarily play-based so it felt like camp and not just a continuation of school. The only thing I didn’t like about camp is that food wasn’t provided so I was constantly on my toes trying to provide the right lunches to match the schedule — for example, on certain days lunch had to be cold and fully disposable, while other days it cold requiring heating and return of reusable containers. I’m addition to staying on top of what gear my son needed each day (swimming clothes? Water shoes? Sneakers? Costume?) this felt like just one too many things to put upon a busy mom like me. For the cost of camp I really feel that meals and snacks should be included but I’d gladly pay more if they were.

    Comment:  Our 3.5 years old twin girls had a great time at camp and they thrived in their fun and nourishing environment. We enrolled them for the full summer for three full week days. They always were so happy and energized each day I picked them up. I like that they had a good routine: free indoors play, outside water play, snack, more play outside, lunch, nap, play and home. The teachers and assistants were always very loving and caring. I also liked that there were planned unique activities each day to add diversity. And I really liked the weekly picture updates. I highly recommend this camp because my children were happy and well cared for.

It's great that they let you book by-week instead of all summer.Coming from a different school during the school year, the level of personal interaction between the staff and parents felt a little lacking (especially considering Beansprouts sterling reputation in the neighborhood), but perhaps this was just a function of the transient camp season.Age of child: 3 (almost 4)Based on a Summer 2017 experience

    Comment:  My son was very happy at this camp for incoming kindergartners. I really liked the mix of activities for the kids - swim lessons one day, soccer another, a field trip once a week. It seemed fun and age appropriate. They kept the kids active and when their was indoor time it was a good mix of arts/crafts/ science stuff. The counselors were all quite nice. My major complaint about the camp was that the counselors changed a lot week to week, so my son would form a bond with one counselor and then he/she would be gone a week or two later.If you could change anything, what would it be?

This year the experience was made better by more consistency in camp instructors and the administrations efforts to keep kids together from the school year. Their activities were fun and creative, with a different theme each week. There were a few field trips that were also a highlight. The camp instructors were high quality and my child often spoke highly about them.If you could change anything, what would it be? Better communication about (expectable and understandable) changes in camp instructors from one week to the next, so that I didn't learn about it only from my child.

His teachers were wonderful and his days were filled with many fun activities including lots of exercise, arts and crafts, music and water play. He looked forward to going and we were happy that he would come home excited to tell us about his day. We liked that the teachers created a Shutterfly shared album for us parents and shared photos of all of the kids having fun each week. They also emailed us a summary of activities with pictures attached every week of camp (we were also provided with a calendar at the beginning of the summer with topics and activities, etc). We would definitely consider sending him to Beansprouts again next summer.Age of child: 2Based on a Summer 2017 experience

    Comment:  Age of Child: 2 Likes: I loved the "teachers" my son had. They really helpd him work on some of his todller growing pains (hitting and sharing mostly). they were kind and always gave me a great rundown of what he did that day and how well he interacted with the other kids. My son loved the activities and is always begging to go back to camp. There are tons of toys and they do creative, fun art projects. The backyard has sprinklers and a water table. Lots of ride on toys and agarden that the kids water with little spray bottles. I was really impressed with how much my son enjoyed the experience, how warm and responsive the teachers where, and how incredibly organized everything was. What would you change? The administration of the camp is a bit strict. I had to argue with the person overseeing the program about what kind of bedding we could bring (I shouldnt have bothered the teachers on site where perfectly flexible and accomodating). And the changing weeks policy is a bit inflexible as well. You have to give two weeks notice if you plan on changing weeks - so when my son got sick on Monday of week 4 and I wanted to see if I could cancel our camp that week and move it to week 8 (which we hadnt previously signed up for and had space), I was told no because I didnt give two weeks notice. So although they advertise you can change weeks as you go thats a large caveat. However, in their defense I understand that they are managing many kids and at many locations and it must be logistically challenging to be flexible. Would you send your child(ren) again?

And, no, this is not an angry reaction to getting "rejected" from Beansprouts. Here's our experience: 1) Completed the application by the deadline 2) Paid $85 application fee (steep) 3) Attended observation playdate for 30 minutes (I don't know what they were looking for or who was qualified to make the judgment; and it takes about 25 for many toddlers to warm up and play). At the playdate the admissions officer said, "While this is not really like a college admissions, we do want people who really want to be here. So if you want to be here, feel free to call me as much as you want. I take note of each time you call or email me." 4) submitted a picture of our daughter (for what? what info do they get from this?) 5) We received a letter of rejection but were invited to go on the wait list. 6) Meanwhile, 2 friends applied after the deadline and were placed on the wait list without paying the application fee or going to the playdate. They then received an email telling them there were spaces available and that if they wanted to attend, they simply had to pay the application fee and tuition. (easy peasy! I wish I knew about this loophole so I could have bypassed the rest of the circus!) 7) With the exception of 1 family, several friends and neighbors all said they called incessantly and their kids got in. They all rolled their eyes as they recanted about that process but said they are happy they did because their kids love their teachers at Beansprouts. I hear only wonderful things about the teachers and the classroom experience at Beansprouts. The admissions process is not on par in my opinion.

My youngest child is midway through second year at Beansprouts and has a fabulous teacher. All four of these teachers have tremendous skill and wonderfully positive energy. My youngest child's teacher last year wasn't quite as energetic. But overall, we are very very happy with Beansprouts. Recommend (Hi/Rec/DoNot) Highly recommend Would you send your child again? Maybe

    Comment:  Program: 3s program Length of Time: MWF half days Child's Age: 3-4 years Review: We have been very happy with Beansprouts. This started with the very postive application process and has continued on to the classroom. Our daughters teachers have created a warm and safe environment for Her to learn in. she is coming home everyday with new songs and words and expressions and has shown a lot of growth. one of the things we love about Beansprouts is that there is outside playtime every day. We had thought the benefit here was the fresh air but we are seeing that she is getting so much out of the process of getting herself dressed to go outside and lining up and following instructions its an added bonus to the philosophy. Her teachers are warm and caring and genuinely interested in her well being. They have been helpful in her transition as a big sister making her feel special. They are easily accessible via email and I feel very connected to everything going on in the classroom. Recommend (Hi/Rec/DoNot) Highly recommend Would you send your child again? Absolutely

    Comment:  Program: 4's Length of Time: 2 days/week Child's Age: 3-4 years Review: Beansprouts is a wonderful school - both my kids went there and had an enriching, well-rounded experience there. Classes usually have one main teacher and two assistant teachers; the teacher/student ratio is generally pretty good. We've found the teachers to be warm, nurturing, and open to feedback.

    Comment:  Program: 4s Length of Time: Full 5 days per week Child's Age: 3-4 years Review: Amazing teachers. Philosophy is meant to develop strong self-reliance in my daughter. Outside/fresh air time daily is emphasized. Programming is varied and interesting. Facility feels crowded sometimes, but that's just a product of the urban environment. I wish feedback was a little more systemized. We know from a calendar what the daily activities are, but most feedback is verbal at the beginning or end of the day.

Our daughter attended the school for 2 years and every teacher we had we all loved. It was our first school experience and the transition went seamlessly.
